Green Bean and Cherry Tomato Salad

I didn’t get any pictures of this salad this weekend, but I made it for the 4th of July cookout. I’m really enjoying making salads that aren’t just stuff on lettuce or spinach.

I’ll just direct you to the original recipe, since she has nice pictures.

Smitten Kitchen’s Green Bean and Cherry Tomato Salad

And I’ll follow with the things I did differently.

I uses 1.5 shallots, but I also don’t know if mine would have been considered large or not.

If I made this again I would maybe double the vinegar, but I like things with lots of vinegar (weird how much I hate pickles, I suppose).

I did use a bit of chopped basil in mine.

And I didn’t use quite 1/3 c of olive oil, maybe more like 1/4 c.

I used a container of mixed heirloom cherry tomatoes, so they are all different colors. I gutted mine, because I hate tomato goo.
